Parent Handbook
Westside Early Childhood Centers

The Westside Early Childhood Center Parent Handbook will acquaint you with the mission, philosophy, curriculum and policies of our programs. We hope it will give you a clear picture of what you and your children can expect while in our care.


Our program is designed with families in mind. We seek to form a partnership with you that promotes the learning and healthy development of your child. The foundation of our work with children begins with developmentally appropriate practice. This approach to teaching is grounded in the research on how young children develop and learn for effective early education and school age care.  All of our programs follow the guidelines of the Nebraska Department of Education, Early Education    & Support Division.
